A king is hosting a party in 24 hours and has 1,000 bottles of wine to serve. You've just discovered that an evil jester poisoned one of them. The poison kills its drinker within 24 hours and exhibits no symptoms beforehand.
Fortunately you have an infinite number of rats at your disposal that react to the poison the same as humans. What is the minimum number of rats you need to figure out which bottle is poisoned?
